Leaks in the Leaks in the Treasury. The taxes collected by the Radical party in power at Washington, from the people of the United States? since the close of ffie war, have amoun ted to Twenty-seven Hundred Mil lioims of Dollars. Try and realize this enormous sum if you can. During tho 6ame period the public debt has been decreased but TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-FOUR MILLIONS. Where is the balance ? The amount of taxes collec ted by the Radicals since the war ended by Lee's surrcader in 18G5, is greater by THIRTEEN HUNDRED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. than all the expenditures of the general Government, less )aymenta on tho public debt, rom the beginning or the ad ministration of George Wash ington in 1789 to the com mencement of the administra tion of Abraham Lincoln in 1861. This covers the ecoud war witli Ureal JLJntain in 1812-15, the Mexican war, and liirty years of Indian war. WHERE IS THE MONEY? WHO ARE THE THIEVES? Secretary Boutwcll's report, made to Congress on the third of March last, showed that over wenty millions of dollars had been stolen by revenue collect- ors, llieiJauleys, the bhooks, the Sneers, and the Soules, with their quarter, hair and three quarter million defalcations in- hcate the "chute a portion of the taxes collected troni the people has taken ; yet their enormous plunder is but a drop 111 the bucket. I he truth must come out eventually, and just now there 13 a strong prospect or develop ments that will contomul the people from' one end of the country to the other. Colonel Woods, late Chief of tho becjet Service of the lreasury Uc partraent, threatens to expose the public plunderers, and the first man he strikes at is Bout well, the Financial Secretary The truth must come out eventually, and just now there is a pretty fair prospect ot do veloninents that will conrount the people from one end of the country to tho other. The Bout well-Pleason ton trouble promises to furnish sonic rich exposures, and, in addition, we have startling facts promulga ted by Colonel Woods, late Chief 01 the becret bervice Bureau in the Treasury Do partment. feetting aside minor corrup tions, such as frauds, runniug up to hundreds ot thousands o dollars in the exchange of Gov ernnient bonds, frauds in con tracts, end frauds in the sales of Government material, Co onel Wood, whose opportuui ties of obtaining information have been of a first-class order 11 . si . . a . discloses the tact that evci since Boutwell left the Com inissionership of Internal Rev enue there has stood ng him on tho books of the Bureau a little deficit unaccounted for in his "stamp accounts" to the amount ot MILLIONS, TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY-SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS. It further appears from re cent disclosures, that Frances E. Spinner, Treasurer of the United btates, has drawn van ous sums of money from the lreasury, amounting m the aggregate to over THREE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. ($3,103,057.03) by warrants made out in his own lavor, and that up to the present timo he has rendered no account to the public of this money. The numbers, dates, and separate amounts of the, warrants so drawn are given, and other facts in connettion with the subject furnished which make out a strong case of presump tive misconduct on the part of this much-trusted publie ofii- cud. He is now in Europe. The Radical spoilers have commenced to quarrel over the division of the plunder, bo lock out for earthquakes. IOU AJl. T.i r.r.li.1.

The People's Defender, pub ished at West 'Union, and ed- ited by that uncompromising ... -. . .. democrat, J. VV. Jfylar, on the 2lh inst. gave publicity to the bllowiug sound views in regard to dissensions among Demo crats : "It is not in human nature always to have things iust as 1 .1 Ti . we desire mem. it is not in he Tiowerot a smLMe individual, l - - - o J no matter howsunerior Le may jo to all his fellows, in all that constitutes human perfect ibili- ty, to regulate matters m the political, social, or moral world, exactly according to his own onceptions of what is right.- While s-uuh diversity of mind, astes and characters exnt ainonir men, no siii'de one can have his own wav : nor is it iirht he should. The true phil- .! ! . i 1 ,1 osopny oi ine is 10 niilKC the best of what we cannot change or improve. In political or- ganizations, if we cannot carry out our own views, or have our own choice, in regard to policy or candidates, tho obvi- ous duty of the individual is, either to yield to the minority. or cease his relations with it. In some Marts of the State we hear of existing feuds, lm-ow- imr out of allcdged dissatisfac- tion with the regular nominees. We have no sort of respect for an lnuiviauai wno reiuscs to abide by the decisious of the party because he failed to se- cure his choice. Such men usually justify themselves by alleging fraud in the nomina- tions, or some other equally frivolous pretext. It frequently occurs that tho disaffected par- ty wautcd the office himself, or before the nomination permit- . i i i t' tea niniseu to become so onus- ted in behalf of another aspir- ant as to be unable to see any merit in the one selected, and instead of abiding by the offi- ciallv declared will of the par- ty they set about to sow tho seeds of discord. This is no time for disseu- sions among Democrats. The country is ruled bv desnotic usurpers, and the liberty es- tabl ished by our fathers found no where in the land. Tho time is thought to be near when our lost liberties may be reclaimed, and the despoilcrs driven forever from power. rpnni.'rt tl, .Ananli.lit.ofl strength of every Democrat the laud to achieve this happy ti.- nnrr,n,...t Lun would throw a pebble in the way of such a triumph is rec- rnnnt to lit'a lncrK trnuta nn,l ,lo. flf.iVa nnniulin.1 Vrxr Democrat in the land, in a en- sis like the present, should sink his animosities, yield his indi- vidmil nrp.forniii.iw. m.d cnn. rvi f 4 li t witwia a? rMiif it iviui iu iu iiojc ul wuo imi ij bv sustainiujr its nominees. tj Let us have harmony every cvliuro in nm nrrrnni'iitinn nnrl victory in insured."
